I baught a Cisco se2500 gigabit switch and the maximum speed for copying from and to the MBL is 10 MB/s considering that (PC-Switch-MBL) are all 10/100/1000 !!!
The item that need to be stated is the size(s) of the files being xferred; e.g. small files, “large” files, mixed, lots.
I also ge around 11 MBs IF I’m doing about 8-10 gigs of audio files (flac) that are around 30-50 megs; but if I’m doing 30-40 gigs of audio then the xfer speed goes up to 26-35 MBs; looks like how my app calculates stuff to be xferred & the overhead of writing/reading & win7 security essentials checking everything including whether I have the “permission” to do access & write each file even if I’m the only user & admin.
Then I’ve found that the 8-10 gigs will go 35-40 MBs if they were video files of about 1 gig each (I just do uncompressed to/from the MBL).
Quite “interesting” on how file xfers are calculated & what impact various file lengths impact the transfer rates; & perhaps how much the “security” aspects create problems. Of course, the biggest culprit could be the Windows Limitations of a max length of the full pathnames (including filename) of 260 bytes; and/or the max length of just length of the path of about 248 bytes; got hit with that one a few times while ripping my CDs as was considered errors.
